Reviews:
"WMX playz some POWER hip-hop. To say that this is 'energetic' music IS to 'lump' it; & this mix just AIN'T 'lumpable'... on top o' th' heavy loopz/beattrax are some VERY wierd goings on, that assuredly salvages it from what "my" image o' hip-hop might be, or HAVE been, until scopin' this one out. Th' beauty of that on Cracker Gasoline Party is that this ain't just nonsense 'rambling'... a lil' bit o' thot went IN to these toonz...

Jimmy Eager's gitarz kick OUT on a few of th' leadlines... like to hear a little MORE o' that. Neat "Zappaesque" influence on a couple of th' toonz at th' end of side 1 - really WIERDNESS [sic] - hey, I do LIKE that; meanz they ain't stuck in NO rut!" — Improvijazzation Nation, issue #17, Summer 1995

"Heavy rap-funk from the asshole of Texas (I know; I spent way too much time there a while back). After kicking off with a harsh remake of 'King of Rock,' the rest of the tape sticks to original compositions. All in all, it sounds no worse than your average Beastie Boys records..." — Aiding & Abetting, issue #71, 2/28/95

"Very cool collection of hip-hop cut with guitar riffs and punctuated with in-your-face vocals and diverse approaches (try to imagine the Sex Pistols and ZZ Top together at last with a kitchen sink conglomeration of polka, disco, hee haw and more). Definitely not a one-song band! While the mix is mostly good throughout, the tape sounds muddy (so turn it up)." — The DIY List, Issue #12, March 25, 1995
